Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Very flexible schedule and great benefits, great people to work with, great retirement pacakge and lots of time off

Cons

Typical government issues with pay scales and management. Longer term employees not movited. Virginia Beach is a very overcrowded city, the traffic is just horrible and all the case managers have really big caseloads. But, generally the people in Va. Beach are good people to work with.

Advice to Management

Continue educating yourself and not get burnt out. Do not take the job just to get more pay before you retire, but take uppermanagement position because you want to lead people.

    Pros

    Benefits package, low stress environment and good fellow employees.

    Cons

    Lack of value for creative or new solutions. Very much a "government mentality"

    Advice to Management

    Pass on the knowledge before you retire! 2009 will see 10% of the CVB members eligible to retire and many of them will take the package talking a lot of knowledge with them.

    "City of Virginia Beach"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits and flexible time off can't be beat. Also, extreme job security, tuition assistance. The drive to work is small. The atmosphere is usually laid-back. You can do very little work, if that is your goal. Low health care costs. Flexible spending accounts. Safe work environment.

    Cons

    Very little room to advance, racism and sexism. Chosen people are fed the best answers prior to the interview, to make sure they receive the job. Chosen people also receive informal training, prior to someone retiring. Moral is very low, due to the favoritism shown, and a continual errosion of benefits and pay. Small raises, increased retirement health care premium contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the sexism.
